Epiphone Coronet 1959 Black

Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $3,000$5,000

Not to be confused with an earlier Epiphone archtop Coronet, the solidbody Coronet rolled out after the Gibson acquisition of Epiphone in 1958. The Coronet is similarly shaped to a number of Epiphone solidbodies including the Crestwood and Wilshire, but only had one pickup in the bridge position. In its first year or so of production, this guitar used a New Yorker style pickup instead of a P-90. These examples are by far the most valuable.

Years of Production: 1958 - 1969

Unique to this Year: Swich from Epiphone-made New Yorker pickup to P-90 mid-year.

Design Elements: Single New Yorker pickups, volume and tone controls, combination tailpiece/bridge

Notable Players: Johnny Marr, Kate Nash, Kurt Cobain
